Alice Cooper Expresses His Feelings About Singing With Paul McCartney
In a recent conversation with Classic Rock, Alice Cooper revealed that he never thought he would sing with Paul McCartney one day and see him in his band, Hollywood Vampires.
Alice Cooper formed the supergroup Hollywood Vampires with the actor Johnny Depp and Aerosmith’s Joe Perry in 2012. The band released its self-titled debut album in 2015. The record was a collection of some rock classics and a couple of original songs inspired by that era. It featured many guest appearances such as Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl, Slash, Christopher Lee, and Joe Walsh.
Paul McCartney contributed to the album with a cover of Badfinger’s ‘Come and Get It,’ composed by McCartney in 1969. The former Beatles bassist and songwriter chose this song because he wanted to pay tribute to the band’s Pete Ham and Tom Evans, who both committed suicide. The singer shared the lead vocals with Alice Cooper during the recording sessions.
During his interview with Classic Rock, Alice Cooper reflected on how it was to sing with Paul McCartney. The rocker stated that it was a fantastic experience that he didn’t expect to happen. He never imagined he would ever sing with McCartney someday. Besides working together, Alice Cooper thinks of McCartney now as an honourary Hollywood Vampires member.
Alice Cooper’s words on singing with Paul McCartney:
“I never thought I’d ever get to sing with Paul McCartney. Not only that, but now Paul McCartney is a Vampire. Every time I see him, he goes: ‘Am I still a Vampire?’ And I say: ‘You’re a Vampire for life.’”
